|A friend got these strange seeds and they sprouted and died but we're labeled as Lithops seeds and cared for as such. I was sent some but have no idea what plant they really are and how to grow them.|

I googled for images of Lithops seeds and found these photos for comparison:
In the line of photos beneath the first picture here, you can click on one showing seeds: http://www.dhgate.com/product/...
edited to add: I think you should plant them and watch to see what they turn out to be! I found this information on sowing Lithops seeds: http://www.strangeplants.com/P...

They died before true leaves developed.

The seedling link helped, but then what my friend grew wasnt lithops the seedlings weren't triangular, the seeds don't match up either they are too large.
So I'm left puzzled what we got. I'll plant outside come spring after frost, but if they are succulents they won't grow outside that is the test, perhaps I'll plant half to see and wait if they die outside then they are probably some kind of succulent so I'll try indoors.
